A Springfield mother is accused of driving drunk with her young child in the car.
Workers at a Clinton, CT, McDonalds called police shortly before 8 p.m. Wednesday to say a customer at the drive-through window appeared to be drunk.
Responding officers arrested Michelle Dion of Mystic Street in Springfield for operating under the influence.
She also faces a charge of risk of injury to a minor for having her 2-year-old toddler in the car.
The child was taken into protective custody and brought to the Clinton police station before a family member came to take custody.
The Department of Children and Families is conducting an investigation into the incident.
Dion is being held on $1,000 bond and will be arraigned Thursday in Middlesex Superior Court in Middletown, CT.
